OSU swine flu cases confirmed; more cases expected
STILLWATER — State health officials have confirmed swine flu in three students at Oklahoma State University, with more suspected.
About 10 people at OSU have been ill with flu-like symptoms over the past two weeks with three cases sent for testing to the state Health Department. Because they tested positive, likely all the cases were swine flu, also known as H1N1, said Steve Rogers, director of university health services.
All of the people have recovered. "It's surprisingly mild and has a fairly rapid recovery," Rogers said.
Rogers said many more cases are to be expected, and persons who are ill are advised to "self-isolate" until they are well.
